The perfect concert movie - lots of songs, an interesting side story, and the actors stay in character all the way through the film

If you're a fan, you'll love it. If you're not a fan, you probably won't be seeing it anyway.

Fake and emotionally manipulative, it's aimed specifically at fanatic Gleeks.

This movie almost makes me ashamed to be a Gleek. When did Glee become pretentious, pompous and preachy?

No one involved seems the least bit worried that a show about social outcasts has become an engine for conformity and consumption.

The movie is chiefly just a cash-grab hymnal to the choir, but briskly paced enough to still remain inoffensive to those outside of its prescribed demographic.

Fast Gleeky fun in 24-song barrage, if that's your thing. But we could we please put an end to Jessie's Girl?

I'm still not a Gleek, but I can see what all the fuss is about.

The movie makes a strong argument for the tender paradox of pop-culture adoration. It's an affection that feels wholly personal, but is shared with millions.

The 3D Concert Movie is by and large for Gleeks only.

The television hit Glee will inevitably jump the shark - or dance over it - as pop culture phenomena do. A decade from now, people may wonder what all the fuss was about. More folks than Gleeks choose to believe exist are wondering that now.

The layers of artifice are many, but they always are; the original show has never aspired to be anything but a cheeky, tuneful and multicultural spin on hoary high school stereotypes.

Here is the problem: If you separate these kids from their characters, if you remove their showtunes from the storylines that make them so dazzling in the fantasy-reality play of the series, then Glee is stripped of its core appeal.

Don't be puzzled; just go with it -- that's the Glee spirit.

With touching real-life underdog stories woven through the concert, Glee: 3D hits all the right notes, even if the 3-D was completely unnecessary.

'Greatest hits' show is tame enough for tween Gleeks.

Following in the live-film footsteps of Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers, Glee: The 3D Concert Movie transposes its flash-in-the-pan teen-pop phenomenon to three-dimensions with mundane, for-fans-only results.

You know you want that slushee in your face (in 3D), Gleeks!

A gleeful good time if Glee is your thing.

Quite painless, and, what's more, a whole lotta fun, with many moments of pure musical electricity.
